Learn about LEED Regional Priority Credits

One of the changes in the new LEEDv3 system is the addition of Regional Priority Credits (RPCs). RPCs are already-existing LEED credits that are selected as most environmentally important to a specific zip code. One additional point can be earned for meeting a RPC (in addition to its regular points), for up to four points out of the six possible per location. Search the Minnesota Regional Priority Credits by zip code here.

Still curious about RPCs in Minnesota? The Mississippi Headwaters Chapter of the USGBC is hosting a seminar to explain LEED's new regionalization points and criteria. It will cover Minnesota's regionalized points and their specific focus on environmental and habitation zones. The event will be held at Center for Changing Lives, 2400 Park Avenue, Minneapolis, MN 55404, July 21st from 11:30am-1:00pm as the USGBC's local quarterly chapter update.

Registration closes soon - register for this event here.

The best LEED exam study for me was to continuously take online practice exams. A good LEED study guide is also very important. Try Leed GA. They have an excellent study guide and the online test questions are exactly like the real test. Leed AP Leed Prep
